Just doing a lot of research on setting up a Server, i have read numerous accounts of people making transitions over from NT4 Domain Controllers maintaining all of their users and groups(with SAMBA), and that sounds fantastic! But the part i'm having trouble with is, that if i am currently running 3 computers each of them wth XP, and i wish to set up a domain based system, where the users groups, files and permissions are stored on a server, could this server be a SAMBA server? And how would the users go about logging in to this server? would it be similar to the method used to log in to Novel? or would there be local users and groups on each machine, that coincide with, and inherit permissions from the Linux users and groups? I'm a network engineering student, so if you could reference the similarities with in Linux with those in windows, i can get a picture of how the whole thing works and don't be afraid of getting to technical!
Cheers guys! I hope i can get my AOpen XC Cube running as my Samba server!!! It'll be oh so very sweeeeet.
So there is like a complete set of replacment technologies that emulate the windows ones? That sounds awesome!!! Can they all be managed from SSH or Webmin remotely? I want this server to be screenless!
Yes, I do believe that webadmin works with samba. I also know that you can use an SSH conection and terminal window with an editor to do most of it. I have a samba server that is hosting all my shared media. I do not have it setup as a domain controller, just a file server.
